jersey shore, with none other than the state's republican governor, chris christie. christie is a die-hard romney supporter. but he's had nothing but praise for the president's handling of the storm, which he says is all that really counts right now. >> i don't give a damn about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me at the moment. i've got much bigger fish to fry than that. so do the people of the state of new jersey. >> reporter: romney, after cancelling eight events in five states, turned a planned rally in ohio into a makeshift bid to aid relief efforts. >> a lot of people will be looking for goods, even though we've gathered these things, as you know. i know that one of the things i've learned in life is, you make the difference you can. >> reporter: it has all of the trappings of a traditional campaign event. you have the stage, the big american flag, the campaign music. lots of romney supporters. but you also have over here canned goods and supplies that people have brought for victims of the storm. romney ignored questions about his views on fema funding yesterday. but d

that the people of new jersey bounce back. >> and larry, i asked the folks on the romney campaign what they made of chris christie's political bear hug here of president barack obama this week. they said this is just a governor doing what a governor should do, and in a disaster, nobody is thinking about politics. but of course, you can't separate politics entirely from all of this. remember that chris christie could be facing a tough re-election battle in 2013, and in a democratic leaning state, a little bipartisan patina might do chris christie some good in 2013. lar larry, back to you. >> i totally agree with what you just said. >>> before sandy, romney was on a roll topping president obama in poll after poll. but in the wake of the devastating superstorm, did sandy stall romney's momentum? here now are keith boykins and robert costa, jonathan colegio. mr. costa, i go to you on the conservative side. i think that barack obama did himself a lot of good. >> barack obama has had a decent week because he's been presidential in handling of this crisis in new jersey and new york. but ha we still see

that was damaged. the republican governor stated that the response that the president has offered in the wake of the storm--mitt romney is also back on the campaign trail and he is back on the negative. as the president took another day off yesterday romney was on a reminder that kron 4 will have full coverage of the election started at 8:00 p.m.. >> here is a quick look at storm trackers for as we head to break. it looks like we do have some rain coming on the south bay. we will talk with erica coming up. >> welcome back it is 5:45 a.m.. teaching here is a live look at the embarcadero in san francisco. we saw the san francisco giants parade it did not rain on that but it did rain on the children. let's take a live look at new york city. cremator airports in new york city are reopened today . >> police are stating that they do have to people in custody. class's at usc will resume today. >> there is still wet conditions outside. >> right around tricker treating time. santa rosa is trying out right now and this is the same for everyone else. the rain is pushing itself to the east. we are under
to worry about. wait till you hear the response from this man, the governor of new jersey, to a question about election day. >> and we are not out of the woods just yet. gary is back with your forecast. [ mitt romney ] we have to work on a collaborative basis. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. what mitt romney's tv ads say about women? i'm mitt romney, or what mitt romney himself says? mitt romney: do i believe the supreme court... should overturn roe v. wade? yes. and it would be my preference that they, that they... reverse roe v. wade. hopefully reverse roe v. wade. overturn roe v. wade. planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. i'll cut
, that was earlier in his career as massachusetts governor. maybe you'll disagree in this instance, i think>> reporter: has gotten a pass. >> i think you're rights. it's baked into the cake. people know that mitt romney has held different positions on different things, and i think that barack obama tried to make that points desperately. >> rom-nesia is a favorite line? >> right. it reminded me of republicans trying -- voters don't care. i think for the last debate, what they wanted was somebody who passed the commander in chief test, who seemed moderate and reasonable, and i think mitt romney gave him that. i think he passed the test. and i think that, yes, the press hasn't focused on it, but i think it's because people -- it's part of the narrative for him, old news. >> here's my problem. the guy campaigns for two years and talks about tax cuts and obama care and the whole panopoly of issues. then mentally he changed -- he is in different tone and emphasis at the least. the question that the press seems to be asking is, is it working? >> i think it's twofold -- >> it probably is -- >> is t
will say anything, john. i don't see anything but sincerity and a guy being a governor here at this point. but the motivations -- there was someone talking butt romney picked up a couple of relief supplies and was moving it, so they made fun of him for doing that too or something, did you see that? >> yeah, i saw that. what's mitt romney supposed to do? he can't campaign in a partisan sense because it doesn't look very good at the moment. i don't see anything wrong with him doing what he did yesterday, or returning to the campaign trail today. the guy is running for president. he's been doing it for several years and this is the home stretch. >> i get to see everything, and some of it, you've got to be mature enough to not be emotionally affected by some of the stuff that you see. but it's almost getting to the point -- there's certain newspapers i don't read anymore. i just can't. i used to read them to know what the enemy was thinking. but now i can't. i'm just about there with twitter. just so you know. i'm about there. >> i'm addicted. >> john, did you see that mayor bloomberg apparen

[applause] in exchange, they have said they will keep the applause down. they're able to give their message to you. we have a panel of questioners from around ohio tonight. each candidate will have 90 seconds to resp
coverage of that stop beginning about 2:15. also live a rally with mitt romney's wife ann. that will be at noon eastern. she's speaking with supporters in columbus, ohio. live today at noon here on c-span. president obama yesterday spent the afternoon with new jersey governor chris christi touring the damage across the state's coast left from hurricane sandy after surveying some of the wreckage and speaking with victims of the storm. both men spoke briefly about the coordination efforts between federal and local officials. >> good afternoon, everybody. thank you-all for coming today. i want to thank the members who are here as well. i want to thank the president. we spent significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. then going over to the shelter here, to be able to meet with folks, have them see the president and his concern. the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as
in disasters and under a romney/ryan administration they're going to slash away at that support. they talked about privatizing fema, block granting fema. if you're a mayor or governor that sounds nuts to you. >> hold on if you read through that endorsement it was not a ringing endorsement. if you looked at "the economist" endorsement of obama. it was not a ringing endorsement. >> it's still an endorsement. >> you can read it partially a guy who was sort of in the middle. >> i'm with becky. it's an endorsement, a 1-0 thing as far as the election is concerned. >> hey, jim, if there is a real outlier in the numbers, let's say the number comes down to 7.5 or something that i think people are not expecting, does the argument that we have last month about the credibility of these numbers come back and what does that do to the campaign? >> again, if you look back at historical situations that are similar, and i think 1992 the bush election with clinton is a good example of this. he got some really good news before the election, and it didn't affect the outcome so i don't think this has an election
. according to a new poll from cnn, president obama is three points ahead of governor romney among likely voters, 50%-47%. the same survey shows president obama winning women there by 16 points and lower income voters by 30 points. now governor romney on the other hand leads with men by 13 points. he has an advantage of six points with people making more than $50,000 a year. the other fresh ohio poll from the conservative-leaning rasmussen has president obama and governor romney tied. we'll go to cleveland and henry gomez. welcome inside the watch "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you're welcome. who has the advantage, president obama or governor romney. >> you have to give it to president obama virtue of the fact that he won here four years ago, and his organizers never left the state. they were heavily involved last year about an issue to repeal collective bargaining restrictions that the republicans placed into law. >> jennifer: are you guys getting tired of seeing these candidates there every single day, several times a day? >> they're everywhere. as you mentioned
reached out to governors of both sides. romney as far as we know only spoke to the republican governors, but he did cancel -- at least canceled some of his campaign appearances. how long does this last? >> well it might be a little bit of a cat and mouse game. you can imagine, particularly if you are romney governor there is a tremendous desire to have him out on the stump particularly in battleground states and at a time when so much free media coverage is being diverted away from the race, quite naturally to sandy, i think it presents a lot of real practical problems for romney who then has to focus or have his troops focus on a ground effort and also on paid media. it is hard to see any which this rebounds to romney's favor, especially if the president is staying in washington and oversee an effort which may at least in the early goings which has been judged of being fairly effective even by some republicans, if it ends up being more effective than the fema effort in new orleans, then i think romney has some problems. >> jennifer: i think it may be a way that i
to be busy. let's start with governor romney who is going to hit seven states between now and election day, including four on sunday alone. tonight he is in ohio. in fact, both of the candidates are in ohio today. he plans to stand with 100 supporters, celebrities, and politicians backing his campaign. governor romney last night was in virginia beach. this was a makeup rally from before the storm. the president's campaign is running out of steam. meantime, president obama also hitting sechbl states between now and election day with the closeness on ohio. he will be in ohio every day until voters head to the polls. the president making his closing argument and focusing on that must-win state. he is also picking up a key endorsement from new york mayor michael bloomberg. earlier in the week he said they were too busy to have a presidential visit. >>> tracie pots for us in washington. thank you. >>> more political news for you. missouri senate candidate todd akin gained national attention for the legitimate rape comments. now he's got an ad with two women talking about of all things rape. >>

. there is a huge contrast in this campaign between myself and governor romney. i'm surprised it didn't come up in one of the debates. >> cenk: here's how it could have come up, if you brought it up. did you notice, you mtv viewers i guess you care about this because you'll be around when things get really bad. although things are getting bad now. and he said he has a much different record than mitt romney. let me show you the good portions of his policies. he would double fuel economy for cars by 2025. he would increase solar and wind energy and eliminate $4 billion in annual tax breaks for oil and gas companies. he's tried to do that, and of course the republicans have blocked it. that's the good. let's show you the bad. the copenhagen summit which so many people had great hopes for that pretty much got nothing done. they had a voluntary agreement--wow. he has basically abandoned cap and trade. no question the republicans fought him on that, but there was no second effort at all. he has approved the southern half of the keystone pipeline and i tell you the minute he's elected--not the minute,
and not the president. >> why didn't governor romney sitting this close to the president ask the question? >> i don't know. >> because he knew it is a lot more ambiguous than political operatives are making it out. it is not -- you can't count on darrell issa to find truth here. >> joining me one of my favorite congress people, ileana ros-lehtinen. nice to see you. thank you for being with me. >> thank. >> how deeply concerned are you about our not knowing exactly what happened in benghazi or what we know does not seem to comport with what the administration has been telling us? >> this h is deeply troubling and either shows great income pa tense or deliberately misleading the american public because the more information that we find out about the terrorist attack the more we know that the obama administration officials did know about it, did know that it was a terrorist attack, did know that it was unfolding and simply just did nothing about it. meanwhile, four americans lost their lives including an american ambassador first time in over 30 years. so we want to know in a set of public hearings wh
and yesterday when i heard governor romney cleaning up those messes and what is going on out there, how hard it was for him and some of his buddies to clean up a football field in college, it made me sick. >> stephanie: i remember one time i cleaned up paper products on a football field. he is so weird. >> caller: yeah. the fact that he says this stuff is scary enough but the fact that people listen and hold up signs, yay, go romney is horrifying to me. >> stephanie: yeah. and people have lost their houses and their loved ones in some cases -- >> caller: yeah. >> stephanie: and he talks about paper products. >> he equates people who are beneath his status with garbage. >> stephanie: yeah. i once had to clear a football field of paper products. >> i don't see him writing a check either. >> stephanie: hello, sexy liberal wrote a check. >> i did the red cross text thing. i did that. thank you. >> nine nine nine! >> stephanie: even with what i pay you? anyone can contribute -- >> i had to hunt through your couch cushions to come up with the money.

to try. governor romney did his best today while he stood sort of oddly smiling and ulterly silent as a heck lir brought the issue to him during his remarks on the storm. [crowd booing] [crowd chanting u.s.a.] >> jennifer: that look on his face, it's as if he was reminding himself of the deal he struck to get this far. that he wouldn't talk about the climate. even though when he was governor he acknowledged global warming as a real problem that requires real solutions. but instead, mitt romney is going to speak only for his corporate funders and the dirty energy empires that many of them run doing what he has to keep the pipelines of oil and campaign cash flowing. and that includes pandering to the far right who shout u.s.a. rather than confronting this frightening reality that we have entered a new normal in which everyday life is punctuated by frequent and intensifying natural climate disasters. and the megaphone of this fringe wing fox news, keeps reinforcing that message. >> where's the proof? these global warming

. here was governor romney during the primary debate saying he doesn't believe we should have fema at the federal level. so i'm a little afraid of what happens if mitt romney gets in charge. as a former fema director, are you afraid? >> here's what will happen. mitt romney will get in charge and he'll realize despite that rhetoric, you still need a fema. here's why you need a fema. because there will be -- look, every disaster is catastrophic to the person that's involved in it. but if we have a true catastrophic disaster where you have literally hundreds of thousands if not millions of people homeless, where you have half or a third of the country without power and i don't mean for five days or ten days but i'm talking about months on end you're going to have to have a federal coordinating agency. that will be fema. but here's the philosophical difference. i think in the meantime, we would be better -- we would be more efficient and we would be more effective if we strengthened local and state responders. local re
